In Cookie Play, a mother from the heartland, fearing her son may be the next Edward Snowden, agrees to hold him captive in her basement to save both son and country. What happens next upends everyone’s moral equilibrium in this twisted, off-beat satire. The truth of black sites, whistle-blowing and sanctioned torture intrudes upon one family’s belief in a life as optimistic and sweet as a TV situation comedy or favorite bedtime story.
Cookie Play is Trap Door Theatre’s fourth world premiere from longtime collaborators playwright Ken Prestininzi (Jeff Award for Best New Work, Beholder) and director Kate Hendrickson.
This project is supported with a grant from the Elizabeth F. Cheney Foundation.
